I’ve searched KH and Google, but I can’t seem to find the answer to my question.
I’m making “Here and There Cables” from [I]Scarf Style[/I] for my son. It’s a ribbed pattern with cables. On the cable row, I slip 6 stitches to my cable needle. Then I p1, k3, p1. Then I slip the last stitch from the cable needle back to the left needle and purl it. Then I purl1, kn3, and p1 from my cable needle. Then I move back to the left needle and p3, k3, and p2. Then I repeat that to the end.
Excuse the horrible photography. My battery is about dead on the camera, and I need a new camera anyway. When I look at my scarf just lying there, things look fine. This is supposed to be a reversible scarf. If I turn it over or stretch out the fabric a bit, you see holes at the cable. That’s a long stretch in there at that cable.
What I’m wondering is if this is common and normal and ok with cables or is there something I need to do differently? I don’t want to keep working on this 72" scarf if I’m doing the cables wrong.
